Unlock Greater Value from Cloud Computing

We are committed to helping you adopt a hybrid cloud strategy that drives digital business transformation. With the VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture, we are harnessing the power of clouds, making them ready for enterprise use cases by extending the capabilities of our private cloud technologies. So now you can run, manage, connect and secure your applications across multiple private and public clouds and devices – including apps running natively on the leading public clouds.

The VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture

See how VMware's Cross-Cloud Architecture helps you avoid cloud silos, giving you both freedom and control in IT infrastructure.

VMware's Cloud Strategy 

Our approach to cloud computing is based on a few foundational tenets:   

  • Deliver a best-in-class software-defined data center (SDDC) private cloud   
  • Extend the SDDC to private and public clouds   
  • Support connectivity, security and management

Innovate freely in the clouds of your choice with VMware.

Private Cloud

A VMware private cloud can support virtually any workload -- from traditional enterprise apps to modern container-based microservices.

Public Cloud

Our technology gives you the flexibility to run your private clouds on-premises or to consume them as a service through VMware vCloud Air Network partners.

Hybrid Cloud

The VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture supports IT's adoption of public or private clouds without creating cloud silos.

Private Cloud 

VMware technology is the foundation for best-in-class private clouds deployed by more than 500,000 customers worldwide.

 

These private clouds have all the capabilities and self-service ease of use of public clouds. They are delivered on a simple, efficient and flexible hyper-converged software platform with industry-leading network virtualization, storage virtualization and management.

 

A VMware private cloud can support virtually any workload—from traditional enterprise applications to modern container-based microservices.

Cloud Management Platform

Provision and manage workloads in your private cloud, even to other hypervisors and to non-virtualized environments, with vRealize Suite. Automate provisioning with policy-based lifecycle management capabilities.

VMware Cloud Foundation

Cloud Foundation is our new unified SDDC platform for private and public clouds. Simplify how IT stands up and maintains private and hybrid clouds while making them easier for developers to use for innovation.

Public Cloud 

VMware technology gives customers the flexibility to run their private clouds on-premises or to consume them as a service through vCloud Air Network partners.

 

Customers can leverage a common platform of virtualized compute, storage and networking that delivers a consistent operational model across private and public clouds and can be managed using existing skillsets and processes.   

VMware vCloud Air

Run any workload, existing or new, with vCloud Air —a secure, dedicated cloud owned and operated by VMware. The service delivers unified networking, common management and security, and the same reliability and performance you expect from your internal data center.

vCloud Air Network Service Providers

Choose from a broad selection of cloud services built on the vSphere virtualization platform. These services are optimized for a variety of use cases such as seasonal projects, development and testing, and disaster recovery.

Hybrid Cloud 

The VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture supports IT’s adoption of public or private clouds without creating cloud silos.

 

This new architecture—delivered by VMware Cloud Foundation, new Cross-Cloud services that VMware is developing, and the vRealize cloud management platform—provide a control plane for common management, policies, networking, and security across private and public clouds. The VMware vRealize Suite cloud management platform and VMware NSX are also key components of the Cross-Cloud Architecture.

 

IT organizations can discover what services exist across different clouds, and enforce security and governance while efficiently managing costs.

 

The VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture enables businesses to more seamlessly build and operate cloud-native applications by managing the provisioning and Day 2 management of cloud-native cluster frameworks. Effectively, IT can provide these frameworks as services to their app teams on the cloud of their choice, with freedom and control.
